A report by the Parliamentary Committee on Defence and Interior is recommending the decriminalization of the possession and use of marijuana (wee).

“Ghana needs to take a cue from different progressive countries and consider alternatives to punishment or incarceration of individuals who use the drug and other alternatives to ending the criminalizatiovn of people who use drugs. criminalization of drug use and possession has led to the arrest prosecution and incarceration of thousands of Ghanaians across the country,” the report noted.

Kwesi Pratt jnr, managing editor of the Insight newspaper seems to agree with the report.

He doesn’t understand why different countries are making fortunes out of marijuana, yet ghana is ‘burning them’ (farms) and arresting those who cultivate or use it.

“Why are the big dealers not being arrested and it’s only the small ones? we all know there are some big men who smoke; lawyers, doctors, civil and public servants but why are they not being arrested and only the poor and the disadvantaged? in the meantime, there are different countries who have given people license to cultivate marijuana” he indicated further.
